Need help with ATSC/NTSC USB TV UDAT7240 driver

I have an IMC UDAT7240 based ATSC/NTSC USB TV adapter I can’t find a way to use. lsusb correctly identifies it: ID 13d3:3215 IMC Networks DTV-DVB UDAT7240 - ATSC/NTSC/PAL Driver(PCM4). No TV software can find it. Yast2 can’t find it as a TV card. How can I get a driver for it? I can recompile the kernel and modules if necessary.

Hi
Is the dvb backend created? /dev/dvb/ what about the output from dmesg?

There is no /dev/dvb - what do I need to do?

Hi
What output from the dmesg command do you see when you plug the device
in? For example for mine I get;


usb 5-4.3: New USB device found, idVendor=05e1, idProduct=0400
usb 5-4.3: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0

Here’s the end of dmesg output after unplugging and reattaching the device:

Most of it means nothing to me. :(-

Hi
Doesn’t look like that model [AD-AU500] has a driver as yet :frowning: There are
other models that seem to be supported;

Is there any way to adapt another driver? Can I use the WinDoze driver with ndiswrapper?

TIA

Hi
Not sure, ndiswrapper is for network cards, but it is just a
wrapper. Maybe a read here http://www.linuxtv.org/ and post to the
mailing list may yield some answers.

This is the current HCL, if you don’t have any joy
